Dates and Almond Granola

4.8 from 12 reviews


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup dates (I used one stuffed with orange peel)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (or canola oil)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (175ºC) and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Combine rolled oats, chopped dates, and almonds in a large bowl.
  3. In another bowl, combine honey, maple syrup, and coconut oil.
  4. Pour the honey-oil mixture into the oats mixture and stir well until combined. Make sure all the oatmeals and almonds have syrups in them.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly on a baking tray and bake for 30 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes.
  6. After 30 minutes remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  7. Once the granola is cool, break it into bitesized chunks.
  8. This will keep in an airtight container for 7-10 days and longer if put on the fridge.
